Each week feels like a huge milestone now. I am huge, my face is still paralyzed from the Bells Palsy, and I just don’t feel very good most days.
We had a growth u/s this week-and baby boy is still lagging-he is growing some, but his abdomen is not, which is a huge cause for concern (I’m honestly not 100% sure why).
The plan as of now is to schedule a C Section for 34 weeks-so roughly two weeks from now. We will do an u/s and an NST (non stress test) each week until then-and if at our second u/s at 34 weeks things are still the same, we will be proceeding with the C Section.
I think I’m still digesting all of this. Honestly, I’m glad that there is an end in sight to my misery. And I am glad that my doctor didn’t decide that they needed to be delivered immediately-so they have a couple of more weeks to cook. I’m scared for them to be born so early though, and feel responsible. I am supposed to be nourishing them-and apparently I’m not doing a very good job.
I am just going to keep taking things day by day, appointment by appointment and see what happens.
